EN ORIGEN : DYNAMIC RESIDENCIES

The dynamic residencies are focused to circus artists who are developing a creation and research work, and instead of focusing on the production of a show, are looking for meeting and dialogue with artists from other artistic disciplines. These residencies are a place for experimentation, giving dynamism, shaking and sharing research as well as confrontation around a topic, another way to practice and an artistic approach that is not circus.

Up to two projects will be selected among all the applications.

FOR WHOM?

These residencies are addressed to national or international artists or companies who would like to meet artists from other artistic disciplines, to share and investigate together around a particular issue without thinking about a production.

The residency can for example be the opportunity for one or more circus artists to meet with:

  • artists who are not training circus and with whom the circus artists never works;
  • some “not-circus-connected” artist(s), professional or expert who will feed the research.

The meeting can happen in many other ways. We give free hand to your imagination and needs.

RESIDENCY CONDITIONS

Each selected project will receive:

  • Free use of a creation studio for 2 weeks;
  • A grant of 600 € for company’s transport and per diems expenses. In case the company/artist has another residency for tax purposes than Spain, this amount includes eventual taxes.

We encourage the company to offer an open rehearsal at the end of the residency.

 

“EN ESTUDI” RESIDENCIES   

This format of residencies has been created to give an answer to the companies and artists who are starting the creation of a short act or piece of a maximal length of 20 minutes.

Up to three projects will be selected among all the applications.

FOR WHOM?

These residencies are promptly addressed to national companies, although the door remains open to companies from other parts of Europe.

EN ESTUDI is a residency thought for artists, duos or recently created companies, that have begun the creation of a new project and would like to have an intense creation time in the next months. No preview’s or premiere’s date is required. The objective is to arrive to a short act, a short piece or a 20-minutes work-in-progress.

RESIDENCY CONDITIONS

Each selected project will receive:

  • Free use of a creation studio during 3 to 6 weeks;
  • A grant of 1.500€ for company’s transport and per diems expenses. La Central may decide to proportionally increase the grant depending on the number of artists participating and on the needs of the company. In case the company/artist has another residency for tax purposes than Spain, this amount included eventual taxes;
  • An artistic and production accompaniment by La Central del Circ.

We encourage the company to offer an open rehearsal at the end of the residency.

 

“EN FABRICACIÓ” RESIDENCIES

This format of residencies targets the companies and artists who are finishing the creation of a more than 20 minutes piece.

During and after the residencies the complicity of several venues in Catalonia (like Antic Teatre, the Festival Al Carrer de Viladecans, the Festival Escena Poblenou or the Fira de Circ al Carrer de La Bisbal d’Empordà) is encouraged, so they can accompany the creation processes of the selected companies, attending open rehearsals, offering more residencies and, wherever possible, contracting one or more companies, that take part of La Central del Circ companies’ pool.

Up to three projects will be selected among all the applications.

FOR WHOM?

These residencies are promptly addressed to national companies, although the door remains open to companies from other parts of Europe.

They are residencies for companies that are working on a long format show of more than 20 minutes and need to work on, during the next months before presenting the result in a venue.

RESIDENCY CONDITIONS

Each selected project will receive:

  • Free use of a creation studio during 3 to 6 weeks;
  • A grant of 1.500€ for company’s transport and per diems expenses. La Central may decide to proportionally increase the grant depending on the number of artists participating and on the needs of the company.
